"Judie was a fantastic resource in helping us find our home. We relocated from out-of-state and initially met Judie at an open house before we were ready to start our search in earnest. While we were thinking about our next steps, Judie thoughtfully checked in with us, offering advice and support along the way. Once we were in a position to start looking, Judie was an invaluable resource in helping us weigh the pros and cons of the locations we were looking at, suggesting towns we hadn't considered, etc. Judie worked around our hectic schedules to arrange convenient times for us to view a number of homes and always offered solid advice on how well (or not) a particular property would work for us given what we were looking for. When we decided to make an offer, Judie was an essential contributor to our decision making process, helping us feel confident that we were making reasonable offers given market conditions. We can't recommend Judie highly enough!"

"Wow - there is only one way to say it - Judie was absolutely critical as a buyer's agent throughout our recent house adventure. What an absolute asset - from the knowledge and advice - to the kindness in answering all our questions. We couldn't be more pleased, and empowered, by having Judie on our side. We also dealt with a co-worker of Judie's, Robin, who was really nice and helpful as well. Would definitely recommend."
"Just want to expand on the recommendation that I started to make when my computer shut down before completing. We had the opportunity to work again with Judie on our future plans on our home. We struggled with the decision of whether to purchase a new home or make changes to our current one. Judie gave us excellent guidance and real estate assistance. She helped us identify the steps we needed to take and the professionals to talk to with regard to renovations we considered. Knowing we might very well consider staying in our home, did not in any way limit her time and service. We found that kind of attention unusual and wanted to comment on our appreciation."

"Judie was fantastic in helping us find our home. She understood all of our needs and patiently explained each step of the process as we went through it. Also, Judie was always there for open houses, home inspections and closing, and other agents were not. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. Barbara Lee, Beverly, MA"

"Judie Zissulis was an invaluable asset while buying my home. Our home purchase was very complex. We purchased a multi unit estate home , built in 1713, in a historic district, with a VA loan. It had many complexities not found in a regular home purchase. Judie knew what to do every step of the way, Her organizational skills and knowledge made it easy to work our way thru the labyrinth. She was always on our side, even when things would not work in her favor. Thank you Judie work being such a great partner in this process. Michael and Susie Ferreter"

"Judie Zissulis was a tremendous asset in helping us sell our house. We had a very challenging and tricky situation that Judie addressed head-on with her outstanding negotiating skills and considerable legal knowledge. She really went over and above the normal role of a realtor - and her extensive knowledge and many years of experience saved the day for us. I cannot recommend Judie enough. Elaine G. "

"Like most people our age, my wife and I have been involved in a handful of purchases and sales of property in the past 20 years. But with each transaction, you realize at the very beginning that you have forgotten as much about the process as you remember, and that you need to learn things all over again and learn them quickly. We all know that terrible feeling that you are forgetting something or missing something in the process that could cause you grief. But with our last real estate purchase, we met Judie. It was, without a doubt, one of the easiest transactions of them all, particularly because of her guidance, and most importantly her accessibility. I’d e-mail a question or call with one, and I’d get a response the same day. It was a nice feeling to know that while dealing with a real estate transaction, I didn’t have to worry about anything. Judie took all the mystery out of what the bank, the lawyers, and the municipality were doing and were supposed to do. I would hi"

"Judie is the utmost professional! She went out of her way to acomodate my needs. I wanted to sell my condo but the market at the time was not good. Although Judie does not usually do rentals, she offered to assist me in finding quality respectable renters. I am very pleased with her service and grateful for the tenants she found. Everything worked out perfectly. She is dedicated, thorough and kind. I am pleased to offer this recommendation."
-Patricia Borseti, Client
"Judie was our broker for many months as we searched for -- and ultimately found -- our perfect house. She was a great and tireless advocate on our behalf; constantly finding new options, arranging countless appointments working around our schedule, and doing all the research required to get the full details and story on any house of interest. I'm happy to recommend Judie to any buyers on the North Shore. She has great knowledge and experience across the area; she's extremely responsive to any question or need; and she was always on top of every aspect of the buying process as we moved from inital interest to the final purchase."
-Rob Leavitt, Client
"Judie Zissulis helped us with the purchase of our first home a few years ago. At the time of our search, we had no idea about the process and only knew the approximate size and location where we hoped to buy. Before we started our search, she met with us at least twice and gave us one-on-one counseling sessions. She even gave us homework to do before our next meeting. Once we received our pre-approval letter, she began the search with us. It didn't seem to matter how many homes we wanted to see; it was more important to her that we were knowledgeable about the market and secure about our decision. Since that time she has been available to consult with for any number of reasons regarding our property and to those people we have referred to her to assist. We could not have hoped for a more professional and dedicated agent."

"I hired Judie Zissulis at the recommendation of a friend when I needed to sell my condo. I found her advice "right on" as to pricing and marketing my unit. Her communication skills were exceptional in negotiating an excellent offer and carrying the deal straight to closing. This was definitely a win-win experience."
-Laura K., Lynnfield, Client
"Judie Zissulis is a dedicated Realtor who works hard to ensure her clients get a fair deal. When my parents were selling the home that they had lived in for 40 years to move to a condo, she made sure she understood what they were looking for, and found them the perfect place. Judie was great at helping them through the process and went out of her way to make sure that all went smoothly. Her legal expertise was very helpful and saved money on something that the lawyers were pushing unnecessarily. Judie also helped me sell my home, which sold quickly at the price I was looking for, due to her marketing expertise. I greatly appreciate that she was there to help us and highly recommend her!"
